Does anyone really know what time it is?

No one at my office needs to wear a watch. We have clocks on our computers, our telephones, in each conference room and on the microwaves in the kitchens. Unfortunately, none of the clocks agree. There is currently a 7 minute difference between the time on the computer and the one on the phone. As a result, I am either too early or too late for every meeting, and attempting to catch the shuttle has been a challenge.

All day long my hubby asks me "what time is it?" Becuase he refuses to wear a watch and is too lazy to reach into his pocket to look at his pocket watch (the pocket watch that he JUST HAD to have).

Why are all the clocks set differently?

I wish I knew. Every so often, someone will complain enough and the phone/network people get coordinated.

Most of us have started setting our watches to match the time on the shuttle, since catching the bus between buildings is our biggest concern.

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
